The Group Quality Department

You will have your role in the Group Quality Department reporting directly to the Group Quality Director. You will design our system to measure and to improve product quality. This means that you will have a huge influence on the whole organisation. The Group Quality Department is looking for multiple candidates with a different focus and expertise: There are possibilities in the area of product quality, quality systems and quality that reflects to the end customer. If you feel that you can contribute in one or more of these possibilities please apply and let us get the conversation going.

Drive quality throughout BDR Thermea this is what we see as your role

You will set the pace and define how people think and talk about product quality. Of course this requires a close alignment with the Group Quality Director and local Quality Managers throughout BDR worldwide. Next to this it is crucial to have a close co-operation with other departments such as Product Management, R&D, Procurement, etc.

In order to design our system to measure and improve product quality you need to take into account many inputs, one of them is the current quality reporting tool we have at BDR. A part of your role is to drive improvements of this tool as part of the whole system. Many other inputs must also be taken into account: how we report in order to communicate and define the right measures, how do we make sure we all have the same understanding of our current quality performance, how do we make sure that the reporting is being used in a standardized way, etc. etc.

All this requires a system design approach that will guide our quality improvement activities.

Your knowledge, skills, experience and character include:

You are open for change and motivated to contribute to the energy transition. It’s natural for you to think outside the box and you are willing to fight the status quo. You have had your first years of experience and you are ambitious and keen to develop yourself, or you have many years of experience and you’re looking for a new challenge in a fast changing environment. Such a strategic role requires system design thinking. You grasp the situation quickly and derive from that a general approach that will work in practice. You can think and talk in concepts and you are capable of bringing facts and figures. You are a good listener and you are able to convince people. You can lead a company-wide improvement program to bring the company to a next level of quality performance. You have a degree of Master in Science (e.g. Industrial Engineering).
